Creating Persistent Links For EBSCOHost Databases
Includes: Academic Search Premier, EconLit, GeoRef, MLA International Bibliography,

These instructions will create a persistent link that works both on and off campus. Off
campus users will be able to use the links only if they have set up their Library account.
Log on to any EBSCOHost database from the Library’s database page.
1. Conduct a search.
2. From the search results screen, click on the title of the relevant article.
3. Right click on the hyperlink information beside the “Persistent Link to this
record:” and select Copy Shortcut.
Select, right click,
and copy the URL
4. You can now paste the persistent link into your document.
Note: When the link is used from off campus, the user of the link will have to provide a
Brock University Library user-ID and PIN number.
